Jehovah thee we glorify

Representative Text

1 Jehovah, you we glorify,
Almighty Ruler throned on high!
O let your Word
Through all the earth be heard.
Holy, holy, holy are you, O Lord!

2 With gentle care you tend your flock;
Your Church, firm-founded on the Rock,
No powers dismay
Until your dreadful day
Holy, holy, holy are you, O Lord!

3 Christ's lordship to all men reveal.
All nations, at his naming, kneel.
All saints, upraise
Your song of loving praise:
Holy, holy, holy are you, O Lord!

4 Around your throne the countless throng
At last in triumph swell the song
While cherubim
Reply to seraphim:
Holy, holy, holy are you, O Lord!
